Acne Laser Treatment
Venus Versa™ uses light-based technology to treat both the cause and visible symptoms of acne. The blue light kills the bacteria that causes acne breakouts, and the red light reduces acne-related inﬂammation. The laser also effects the oil gland, so the future breakouts are usually much less severe and more easily managed, and the skin less oily.

Venus Versa™ acne treatments work best for light to medium skin tones. The treatment may work on darker skin, but there is a higher risk of discoloration because darker skin has more pigment in it. It’s best to consult with the technician to see if you’d be a good ﬁt.
Most patients receive a total of 4 to 8 treatments.
Treatments are usually done once a week, and depending on other treatment protocols, each laser session may be 6 to 12 days apart.
One session usually lasts 15 minutes, depending on the area being treated.
The treatment feels like a very light snap with an elastic band against your skin, or like if someone lightly ﬂicked you. The applicator has a cooling feature built into it to make the treatment as comfortable as possible.
It really depends on the severity of your skin and home care, but most clients will get a touch up session every 3 to 12 months. Chemical peels may also be recommended monthly to help while in maintenance, and a personalized home care regimen will always be suggested
There is no downtime. You can return to your daily schedule immediately after your treatment.
Yes, you can apply makeup immediately after your treatment, but make sure you put on sunscreen
